Section 12.07 Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation.

(a) Non-Competition. In consideration of Cinemark’s participation in LLC and in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, Cinemark and its Affiliates agree, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, not to engage or participate in any business, hold equity interests, directly or indirectly, in another entity, whether currently existing or hereafter created, or participate in any other joint venture that competes or would compete with any business that LLC is authorized to conduct in the Territory pursuant to this Agreement, whether or not LLC is actually conducting such business in a particular portion of the Territory. The foregoing restrictions shall not apply (i) in the event Cinemark or its Affiliate acquires a competing business in the Territory as an incidental part of an acquisition of any other business that is not prohibited by the foregoing, if Cinemark disposes of the portion of such business that is a competing business as soon as practicable, (ii) to any direct or indirect ownership or other equity investments by Cinemark or its Affiliates in such other competing business that represents in the aggregate less than 10% of the voting power of all outstanding equity of such business, and (iii) in the event Cinemark enters into any agreement for the acquisition or installation of equipment or the provision of services on customary terms that does not violate the exclusivity of LLC hereunder with any entity that has other businesses and provides other services that may compete with LLC.

(b) Non-Solicitation. For the Term of this Agreement and a three-year period after its termination or expiration, each Party shall not, without the prior written approval of the other Party, directly or indirectly: (i) solicit for hire any employees of any other Party or its Affiliates at the level of vice president or higher; or (ii) induce any such employee of such Party to terminate their relationship with such Party. The foregoing will not apply to individuals hired as a result of the use of a general solicitation (such as a newspaper, radio or television advertisement) not specifically directed to the employees of such Party.
